I was just boiling the kettle for yet another cuppa and musing idly about the upcoming tour..and how soon it is now! Remember how exciting it was sharing our experiences in here during the last tour and how great it was with live feeds and live posts? Good times:)
I have made a lot of friends in here since the last tour and have always said I hope to get to meet some of you when the next tour comes round. I was so hoping we could arrange the same tour dates so we could all meet up and even be near each other during the gigs shouting and screaming and singing our hearts out together:)) but the shame (for me at least) is with such short notice on pre-sales and ticket limits etc it wasn't really possible to arrange dates with friends here so we got to meet each other at the event itself. I know some of us will meet here and there or on an individual basis, and nowt wrong with that, but I was hoping more for something more 'organised' - you know?
Anyway, I am in the UK and whilst I know this sort of stuff has been bandied around before, would any of you be genuinely interested in trying to organise a proper get together with food, drink and music, during the tour regardless of where each of us are going to see the band?!
What do you think?
At the moment, if there is sufficient interest, I was thinking of a meet up somewhere in the Midlands could be fair travel-wise and maybe less expensive for all rather than London? Or would most prefer London? Your thoughts on this would be welcome.
If no one replies I will be secretly mortified but will try and act cool and breezy about it whilst singing karaoke alone in a bar somewhere doing U2 songs a huge disservice since I can't hold a note...
Apologies for the long post, brevity and conciseness were never a strong point!!
(Mods - could this thread stay in the general forum or upstairs so most people can see it..pretty please with bells on it)
